What is a Farmer Market?
Merriam- Webster defines it as "a market at which local farmers sell their agricultural products directly to consumers".
Did you also know that the first farmers' market opened in 1634 in Boston, Massachusetts, but one can trace farmers' markets back 5000 years to Egypt where farmers along the Nile would gather and sell their fresh produce. In ancient times farmers' markets served as the historical-version of grocery stores.

Eat This Shoot That: Food and Photo Tours

IMG 0536When I heard about Eat This Shoot That, a food and photo tour of Santa Barbara, I immediately thought it was a genius way to see a city and wanted to take one myself. What could describe a city better than a taste of the local cuisine? And how can these memories be cherished better than by learning the secret to capturing them on camera? I had the opportunity to talk with Tara Jones, the “Owner/Big Cheese” (as her email signature notes) of this four-year-old business. Tara has an extensive background in photography and, like most of us, a great appreciation for food, which gave her the inspiration to open this now very successful tour concept. I got the chance to ask her about her inspiration, love for food and photos, and much more and quickly became even more excited by her unique company.
